Dazzling the pages of July’s W Magazine, Naomi Campbell and Joan Smalls team up to give next month’s issue something that is beyond the wow factor. Joan hits the cover, emblazoned as the new face of fashion, and supermodel, Naomi who is about to launch a reality tv show called ‘The Face’, is the star of a luxurious photoshoot.

What’s more perfect? We have two of the most beautiful women in fashion, who are known and respected for different reasons, coming together amongst the pages of one of the fashion world’s most celebrated magazines. Naomi Campbell has let her personal lie take centre stage throughout the years, overshadowing the hard work and the wonders that this woman does but that doesn’t mean that the supermodel hasn’t let that influence the strength that she has in her work. ‘Strike a pose’ are the famous words of Madonna’s Vogue and that is certainly what Naomi has done. Here, wearing this seasons much have mix of florals and textured fabrics, she also revealed to W Magazine that she loves reality TV, ‘I Love the Real Housewives – all of them,’ she said. ‘Of course, I would never expose myself in that way. But I’m happy to share my experiences’, something that she’ll be doing with ‘The Face.

Muscling in on the action was ‘the new face of fashion’, Joan Smalls, who got herself noticed thanks to her beyond fierce runway walk, tells W Magazine when she first started, ‘it never picked up for me, doing shows’, and that being booked by Riccardo Tisci in Autumn 2010 to present the Givenchy Couture collection, ‘changed people’s perspective’. She isn’t wrong. Since then she has gone on to become a favourite amongst designers on the scene and become, as W Magazine claim, the new face of fashion. Shot by Steven Miesel, Joan Smalls looks every bit the supermodel, giving the female equivalent of Zoolander’s ‘blue steel’, when it’s actually her femininity that steals the show.
